I will cut to the chase.
Having a child with severe food allergies, it is essential for people on the Upper West Side to be aware of the kind of attention or ( lack of given to Hygiene and Public Health at BARZINI on Broadway.
DO NOT BUY anything that you can not actual confirm as Fresh, such as what they Falsely display and sell as BARZINI FRESHLY SQUEEZED ORANGE JUICE.
It is even more shocking when confronted with the problem, The Owners continue to sell with impunity what is obviously orange flavoured mix that tastes like a concentrate mixed with water.
Add to this the experience of buying MOLDY bread and Cake;
The last time I tried to see if they are still selling Orange drink as ""Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice"" the owner actually flavoured refused to sell it.
The question is why and how BARZINI continues to conduct business despite such gross deception and public health issues.
Having several times , politely informed the ""friendly"" owners and given feeble excuses, one has to conclude that , it is just the way owners of BARZINI choose to does business with impunity.
Do not be fooled by the great selection of cheese, thats for the RATS as several have attested here...
Pros: Convenient Location
Cons: SELLS outdated moldy food, RATS Reported By shoppers.
